Washington will not send official delegation to the Winter Olympics in China. Jen Psaki, the US administration's secretary, said. According to a White House spokesman, the decision was made in connection with numerous human rights violations, including the Xinjiang genocide. The American delegation will not take part in the Winter Olympics in 2022 and the Paralympics in 2022 in Beijing, Psaki stressed.
At the same time, the White House has assured that a diplomatic boycott will not prevent American athletes from participating in the Olympic Games. According to Psaki, athletes from the United States will receive the full support of the US authorities, but from home.
It has previously been reported that the United States is threatening to boycott the Beijing Olympics. China has again expressed dissatisfaction with the issue.
